Is Chandrababu Trying To Undercut Balayya Babu?

Is Chandrababu Trying To Undercut Balayya Babu?

Is Chandrababu Naidu trying to apply his 'use and throw policy' on his brother-in-law Nandamuri Balakrishna? Chandrababu is known to dump people after their utility ends. He has done this for NTR, Nandamuri Harikrishna and several others. He has used the thrown the BJP twice and now, he appears to be doing the same for Nandamuri Balakrishna. Till recently, he needed Balayya Babu as a counterfoil for Nandamuri Harikrishna and Jr NTR. With Harikrishna gone, Chandrababu doesn't need Balayya Babu anymore.

The first indication of Chandrababu's plan to dump Balayya Babu is to deny tickets to Balayya Babu's best buddies. For instance, Kadiri Babu Rao of Kanigiri constituency in Prakasam district. He is known to be very pally with Balayya Babu. Chandrababu has decided to bring in former MLA and Congress leader Ugra Narasimha Reddy into the fray. Reddy will soon join the party and is likely to be given the party ticket from Kanigiri. That will eliminate Kadiri Babu Rao from the fray. Balayya Babu might not exactly fight for Kadiri Babu Rao because even his seat in Hindupur is at stake. Thus Chandrababu will eliminate on Balayya backer without even staging a fight.

Is Balayya watching these deadly moves? What will he do? Will be bat for his friend or guard his own goal post in Hindupur?
